Trending patterns in formal shirts for a dashing office look

  • facebook

Choosing the right outfit for your formal meetings is important as it contributes to boosting your confidence in the workplace. Stay aligned with #latestfashiontrends by opting for trending patterns and right color apt for summers.

Ritesh Srivastava, CEO at Elitify and Akshay Narvekar, Founder at Bombay Shirt Company, have listed must-have patterns for formal shirts for men this summer:

* Contrast panel formal shirt: A crisp contrast panel formal shirt in a subtle palette of grey, blue or soft pink is one of the trending and versatile style when it comes to formal dressing. The minimal sharp line in contrasting color on cuffs, placket, and collar gives an edgy yet sophisticated look.

* Pinstripe shirt: A classic combination of white and blue in pinstripes is one of the smartest options for formal meetings. This pattern is timeless and can give a confident look when teamed with black trousers and a pair of brogues.

* Tiny dotted formal shirt: A dotted shirt in rich tones of navy blue, burgundy, maroon or bottle green is quite the trend among millennials. Tiny white dots render a dynamic yet robust styling essence making a distinctive style statement.

* Printed shirts: Eccentric and abstract printed shirts are the latest trends in men’s formal wear. Men feel comfortable wearing printed shirts to work and gone are the days when printed shirts were labelled as a party-wear. Dynamic prints like leaf and floral, abstract, polka dots, brick print patterns etc. add up to make a statement personality. Simply glide on a cotton or a satin printed shirt to work and make a style statement with elegance.

* Striped shirts: Striped shirts are a common choice for men from every age group, youth or elders; any man would have striped shirts in his wardrobe. A striped shirt may not be as flexible as a plain shirt but it brings about a change from the everyday monotonous solid shirts. Interesting blend of colours like bottle green, multi-coloured, lavender, peach etc. are perfect this season to break the monotony. You can pair up a striped shirt with trousers or even denim for a casual day out.

* Solid coloured shirts: The risk-free and undying trend for formals shirts are solid coloured shirts. A classic white shirt is an essential outfit in your wardrobe paired with a detailed collar and cuff style that can make or break a personality/image.

Track lights in particular can be easily adjusted at varying angles and are ideal for kitchens, living rooms and gallery spaces.

* Accent-uate: How you decorate your abode is reflective of your persona and status. One can purchase from an array of glimmering mirrors, regal trunks and royal ‘jharokas’ such that you can re-create varying themes reflective of tales within your home sans the cost of doing so. For summer, you can opt for floral themed accents and minimalist geometric patterned mirrors. You can also use colourful wall shelves as functional accessories.

* Another brick in the wall: Wallpapers are a stellar answer! They ensure that your walls look brand new while saving you the additional cost you would otherwise incur on decorating your mundane wall. There are a plethora of options to suit your style one can choose from a wide variety of creatively designed wallpapers.

* Make a statement with your fifth wall: Looking to do something more creative with other walls of your home? Simple yet aesthetic, designer ceilings are your answer.

  • facebook

#SwaraBhaskar who is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, #VeereDiWedding,  said not every women-centric film has to be about a social issue.

Bhaskar was present in Mumbai for a promotional interview for the forthcoming film, "Veere Di wedding'.

'Veere Di Wedding,' which talks about four childhood girlfriends and their life stories is just a commercial film and not about an issue said one of the lead actress, Swara Bhaskar.

"I don't think, every women-centric film has to be about an issue or any needs to come out with a social agenda. I do think such films need to be made, and people need to know about the issues. I come from the same background but not every film need to be about an issue. We can have a commercial film about women where everyone is having fun and while doing all of that maybe say something different and that's 'Veere Di Wedding'."

The 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' actor said she is excited about the film's release because it is a special film for her.

"I am very excited for this film because Veere di wedding is a very special film for me. I have played a role like this before, I haven't played a rich character before which is out and out glamorous. And also I think to do a lead role in the mainstream commercial film next Kareena and Sonam is a big deal. So far I have only played supporting roles in commercial films."

Swara was seen sporting a white  Atelier Zuhra dress on the song launch of the film 'Veere di wedding'. When it turned into a meme about the famous Nirma girl from the washing powder advertisement, Swara joined the crowd for a few laughs, she said, "I thought it was funny when you become a meme on the internet, it means you have arrived. It means you are on the public's mind. I thought the Nirma one was very funny."

Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the film revolves around four friends attending a wedding. It stars Kareena Kapoor as one of the leads who is getting married, along with friends as Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, and Shikha Talsania who have their own stories to tell.

Jackie Shroff & Mahie Gill Worked For Free In Phamous – Karan Lalit Butani

  • facebook

It is always believed that actors demand a whopping fee for every project they sign. However, sometimes they come across such enticing scripts that the remuneration hardly matters, like in the case of the upcoming crime drama – #Phamous.

Set in the infamous ravines of Chambal, debutant director Karan Lalit Butani’s Phamous boasts of some of the most renowned and brilliant names of the industry like Jackie Shroff, Jimmy Sheirgill, Shriya Saran, Mahie Gill, Pankaj Tripathi and others.

It is quite a feat for a movie that is made on a tight budget to have such well-known and talented actors on board, but honestly, it wouldn’t have been possible had it not been for these actors, who charged much less than their usual fee for Phamous.

The story of the film was so captivating that most actors didn’t mind coming on board with little or no pay at all. Yeah, shocking but true.

“I am really grateful to all my actors for having faith in me and believing in the film so strongly that they didn’t even think much about their remuneration,” says director Karan Lalit Butani. He adds, “For instance, Jackie da charged just a little more than a penny for this film, if I may say so. What he charged my producers was marginal compared to what he gets in the industry otherwise and most definitely deserves. That’s the case with all the actors who worked with me on this film. All of them charged almost half of what they charge otherwise. And Mahie Gill didn’t even charge a single dime for the project.”

Sweet isn't it!

But when your career is going well and you are busy all the time, I don't think it's the right time to produce (shows) because whenever I do decide to produce, I would like to do it fully. I would put all my time into that. And for that, I have to stop acting. Right now is not the time to do that because acting is going well."

when talking about the shows he would like to work on he said, "Something that touches me and I can be proud of. I like to host some shows like this one 'Zindagi Ke Crossroads'. This is me being myself. I am not trying to be somebody else. I am doing something which I find very meaningful which is why I am excited about it,".

When talked about hosting shows, Ram said, he enjoys hosting but loves acting  "As actors, we love playing characters, going into the pretend world. So I like acting more but once in a while when I host, it is a lot of fun,"

#KareenaKapoorKhan along with entire cast and crew of the film graced the music launch of #VeereDiWedding here in Mumbai. During media interaction, Kareena Kapoor shared her reason for doing the film stated she was obsessed with the story for the film.

Talking about the film, Kareena said, “ I think the story is something I got completely obsessed by and I thought it was really cool. And I think who better than this entire team, to put this film together. So I think this was the reason I wanted to do Veere Di Wedding. And as far as my character, Kalindi is concerned, I think she is a really cool character and there is a reason why she is commitment phobic, which we will be seen in the film”

Further adding about her character, she said, “She (character) is not commitment-phobic that made me picked up the role. I think what made me take up this part, for me, as a commercial mainstream actor, who is always used to work with mainstream actors, be it Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan. For me, it was very different to be part of a film with four girls”  

Kareena Kapoor is known for working with A-list actors in Bollywood, but this time around she is paired opposite TVC actor Sumeet Vyas.

Sharing her funniest memories on the sets, actor Kareena said, “I think it would be throwing Sumeet Vyas off the moon in the film. I think that was quite funny because I have never done that in my career. I never had the opportunity to throw a hero off from a moon. So thank you, everyone, for giving me this chance, I am sure it will go down in history”

I love the script I picked it up at the when I was at the lowest in my career. I trust the producers. We have 4 hot steller actresses in it and I have always believed that when I have a film which is not so successful on paper it has become super successful even before release. 

I was told Dirty picture will be a flop. they said who can I have Vidya Balan playing an item number girl and that film got sold before and the same way the movie has almost covered its costs and we are looking at a clean run. So I am a happy producer."

Since the release of the film's trailer, the filmmakers began a hashtag campaign on social media saying Veere the Weddign is not a Chick Flick. '#IAmNotAChickFlick. 

When asked the reason behind using the hashtag producer Rhea Kapoor said, "The #IAmNotAChickFlick came up because everywhere we went we were told, 'it's fun looks like a chick flick' and all I could think about was why is 'Charlie's Angels' a chick flick and 'Rush hour' an action comedy. Why is my entire gender in one genre? All films that have women init are in one genre and 'Veere Di Wedding' is so much more than one thing. It's more than a comedy and a drama. It's life and fun, don't think it can be out in a box. that's what it is a revolt against labels, #IAmNotAChickFlick ."

When talking about what is special about the film lead by four female actors, Swara Bhaskar, "It has been 105 years to our industry and first time mainstream Bollywood is making such an Hindi film in which has the life story of four girls who are friends and nobody is falling in love with the same guy, and that is what is special about the film."
